Sean Szeps is the funniest dad in Oz. Well, at least that’s what his mom says. A podcast host, writer and content creator, Sean is most well-known for his accidental advocacy, which arose from sharing his journey as a gay husband raising boy-girl twins.
Originally from America, Sean moved to Australia and began hosting parenting podcasts like Spotify’s The Dad Kit and Mamamia’s The Baby Bubble, both of which quickly garnered a cult following. This opened doors, allowing him to write about the queer parenting experience for outlets such as the ABC, Mamamia, Kidspot, AdWeek and The Daily Telegraph.
As a passionate advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, Sean launched Australia’s first-ever coming out podcast, Come Out Wherever You Are, with SCA’s LiSTNR, his guests including Billy Eichner, Courtney Act, Abbie Chatfield and Patricia Karvelas.
His debut book, Not Like Other Dads, A fearless, frank and funny memoir about reinventing the rules of parenting, was released in June 2023.
Sean lives in Sydney with his husband, Josh, and their twins, Stella and Cooper.
